When dealing with health issues, it’s not always easy to have a plan to deal with injury or sickness. What I’ve learned over time is to follow the Golden mean philosophy. Aristotle might have lived a long time ago, but I think he hit the nail on the head. Simply put, the Golden mean, is to live a tempered life and not one to extremes. And when I apply this philosophy toward my health, I need to remember to have balance in my life: What I eat, drink and when to (and not to) exercise.
